2018-19 Lacrosse Season

St. John’s (Senior Day)-4/20/19

The junior class has this weekend’s senior day tailgate. As a special treat, they have ordered food from Mission BBQ. The menu will include: sliced brisket, pulled pork, pulled chicken, mac-n-cheese, coleslaw, corn bread and slider rolls. We are asking everyone else to contribute a side salad, appetizer, dessert, or drinks. This tailgate we plan to put appetizers on a separate table near parents so they can enjoy while waiting for the team to eat. Our hopes are there will be plenty of leftover food for family and friends to enjoy. The tailgate is currently planned for outside if weather permits. If rain is in the forecast, we have reserved the O’Dea Room for the tailgate.

Brown Tailgate

There are only a few families going to the Brown game so we need everyone to bring something. The food will be delivered directly to and loaded on the bus. See the map below for the bus location. If you are going, use the signup sheet so we have enough drinks and snacks. There will be no organized parent tailgate so there will be no tent, food or drinks.

For those asking about TV or livestream coverage of the game, here is a link from the Brown website. I have had a number of people asking how to find if the game is televised. I normally look on the Villanova or the opponents schedule page and it is typically listed as additional information for the game.



Brown – 3/25/19

  • Mon, 3/25/19 @ 3:00 pm
  • Field – Stevenson-Pincince Field
  • GPS Address: 235 Hope St., Providence, RI
  • Tailgate – The tailgate will be short and sweet. The sandwiches will be loaded right onto the bus for the quick departure back to school. The attendance is going to be light according to the signup sheet so let’s make sure we have plenty of water and individual snacks. With only on street parking, we probably won’t have a tent up so plan to bring your own food and drinks for the ride home. I’m guessing most people will make a quick departure like the team.
  • Parking in lot 1 is restricted until 5PM.  Do not park in lot #1.
  • Street Parking – Spectators can park on surrounding streets such as Hope Street, Arlington Avenue, Lloyd Avenue, Bowen Street and Brook Street. Please be mindful of all posted parking restrictions and regulations that apply to surrounding streets.
  • Tailgate Signup sheet (Juniors – Subs) True Grab and Go (fill bag, get on bus. They will get immediately on the road)
  • Attendance sheet
